The food here used to be fair at best. Now it has gotten worse. The coffee is awful! You can see through it. I've brought my own on the few ocassions I've been there. Whether it has been a change in ownership, I don't know. But the food is not up to what you would expect from a New Jersey... More

We experienced a friendly staff and very good food. Take care when ordering, the portions are ample. You won't leave hungry. You have to try the Baclava Cheesecake, not terribly sweet just good. We will visit again next time in town.

Conditionally passed health inspection. Ordered pork chops. Dry. Difficult to swallow. Service was excellent. Rolls served nice touch but burned.

We arrived here late one night because it was an all-night diner that we assumed, like most diners of this style, would be jumping and flashy and fantastic--with comfort food perfect for any out-of-towner. We couldn't have been more wrong. Upon sitting down we were greeted with cloudy cups and a waiter who was as wet behind the ears as... More

Three of us ate there a couple of Saturdays ago...none of us liked the meal we ordered. Used to be good - used to be packed - not so much anymore.

Even worseOn Easton Ave, down from Rutgers U is this old diner that is so average and ordinary that we will drive to any of the much better diners and other eating spots that abound in that area. The food is not of the best quality and the service I have experienced is even worse- slow and unfriendly.

Impromptu family breakfast for 11 people, seated right away, service and food was great. Jersey diners are awesome! All our food was cooked as ordered. Will definitely visit again.
